Replacing Oak Ridge Outdoor Pool: an estimated $21.9-28.9 million

Replacing Oak Ridge Outdoor Pool: an estimated .9-28.9 million

With the 80-year-old Oak Ridge Outdoor Pool having structural problems and losing an estimated 110,000 gallons of water a day when the pool is in operation, city officials are looking at replacing the leaking pool shell and other changes.

Now the consultants hired by the city to come up with three options for the pool and the surrounding area have returned to Oak Ridge City Council with those options, which carry estimated price tags of $21.9 million to $28.9 million.

The pool for Option 1 would be like the current Oak Ridge Outdoor Pool.

Landscape architect Alisha Eley and engineer Cary Dennis, both with Kimley-Horn and Associates, presented conceptual designs for the three options and information to city council on Jan. 30 at a council work sesson. All three options include keeping the pool or pools on the same site at the corner of Providence and Robertsville roads. All options offer three to four times more parking than currently at the pool – including separate parking for buses that is not available now – and other amenities such as improvements to restrooms.
